Vegetable Dying at Etsy Labs

What a fun time with Aimee of Hook & Matter at Etsy Labs this past May! I'm a bit late in posting this because something awesome and BIG is happening and completely took over my summer. But that's ok, it's a good thing. More news to come later, but for now, back to veggie dyeing....



 We laid out our dye pieces and rolled them up in a twig & tied w/ string. Stuck it in a pot of hot water and tea bags for about 20 min, and took them home in baggies. 


 I let my kerchief get all gross and moldy - supposedly a good thing! Washed it off and, voila! A beautifully dyed silk kerchief. I'm very happy with the results, and can't wait to try it again!
